Challenge

Until recently, the primary migratory route from Greece went through the former FYR of Macedonia, Serbia, Croatia and Hungary to Austria and Germany. However, on the 16th October the Hungarian authorities closed its border with Croatia which resulted in migrants seeking to pass through Slovenia. This has increased vulnerabilities for the refugees and migrants especially as winter is approaching.

Solution

The IFRC along with 28 National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies provide the refugees and migrants with basic Health needs, psychosocial support, food and non-food distribution, restoring family links and water and sanitation. With winter approaching, there is a need for warm and waterproof clothing.

Long-Term Impact

Providing humanitarian assistance to the incoming refugees and migrants will allow them to safely proceed with their journey in a dignified manner.
